I'm not sure what downloadprovider is, although that doesn't sound like something I would trust. Doing a quick search increases my worry.

So how did you root your phone? Have you installed a custom ROM as well, or did you just root it? Have you booted in to recovery and tried clearing everything that way?

If you can get a copy of the download provider (apk?) from the stock rom, you should be able to drop it back in since you've rooted & done CWM.


Check XDA forums for the stock firmware, or maybe someone has a copy floating around.


It *may* be safe to drop a non-stock copy in, as long as it matches the system version you're using it on.

Did you root your phone prior to installing clockworkmod recovery?

When all else fails, I would recommend going back to stock and starting over. Just do a search and there are tutorials on how to do so.


Good thing about messing up an Android phone, much easier these days to fix the problem.
